Last year the star studded cast of Christopher Nolan's new film popped up around southern Alberta while filming Interstellar. (Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine, Casey Affleck and John Lithgow) It was very exciting to have Nolan back filming in the province, because we all know that Nolan films are rarely flops and more likely the biggest blockbusters of the year.
The newest trailer for the sci-fi flick, which we all know so little about, came out last week. There are a lot of shots of our fields and one really good one of the Okotoks baseball diamond. The small town located just south of Calgary hosted much of the filming the the region.
Fun fact: the dust clouds that are coming towards the field were created by 5 giant fans. They were loud - but CGI was still needed.
